When and where is Adobe Max 2018?
This year's Adobe MAX is being held at the Los Angeles Convention Centre from the 15-17 October. If you can make it, we'll see you in (hopefully) sunny LA. But if you're not able to get to the Southern California city, never fear, you can still join in the action via Adobe's live stream.
And action aplenty is pretty much guaranteed. Adobe always pulls out all the stops for its annual conference, and Adobe MAX 2018 is no exception. Among the keynote speakers you'll find legendary producer and director Ron Howard, DJ and musician Questlove, comic book artist Nicola Scott, YouTuber Lilly Singh, and photographer Albert Watson.
Adobe MAX attendees will also be invited to witness all the latest and greatest updates to Adobe's Creative Cloud suite, as well as learn some techniques to create amazing content. The learning sessions range from lectures to hands-on demonstrations in everything from photography and videography to prototyping and character design – there really is something for everyone!
